I can't use Wirelesskeyview, my anti-virus keeps deleting it and I can't disable it. Is there another way to get it?

Is it WEP? If so, you could try the aircrack route to find the password. – Rob Nov 18 '11 at 15:23
@Rob Alright, I'll try that now. – Xander Lamkins Nov 18 '11 at 15:33
The only downside is you need the appropriate drivers and a compatible wireless card, it's not a definite solution. – Rob Nov 18 '11 at 15:35
@Rob, yeah, it didn't work. – Xander Lamkins Nov 18 '11 at 15:37

Try Cain & Abel. It has a nice local password recovery for wireless passwords.

It's a while since I've needed to use something like this, but lets you view password fields in windows that are asterisk protected.
